    Crushed Dreams in Paradise

    Oh my. @Broncola , I don't have much positivity for you in that case. :-/

    Crushed Dreams in Paradise

    There are dealers that will deal if you're willing to travel. And if not, in a couple years they'll almost certainly be below MSRP everywhere, plus the used market which I'd prefer if my lease ended much later than it does.

    Link to the detailed trim levels thread

    Yes! There's a single long document though of it. That looks like part of it though.

    Link to the detailed trim levels thread

    Thank you but those aren't it either. (I use the prelim specs often though) The one I'm looking for is a long, long read. The base trim has several pages of specs and features listed in great detailed. This was released by Ford I believe (99%).

    Link to the detailed trim levels thread

    Thank you but no, it was black and white text in a PDF I believe and it went into ass bleeding detail about every feature of each trim. And yes that one you shared I think had spelling mistakes and by now God knows how many more other equipment changes. Thank you though.

    Not the short comparison one that's stickied in this forum but the super detailed text link that looks like a manual format. I've been scrolling through my random f'd up search history and nothing ha. Thanks.

    2.3L power to weight ratio

    All of this is about gearing. Why do you think the original Jeeps managed just fine with like 40 hp or what ever they had back then? It'll be fine. Regearing is always an option depending on your goals.

    Are first year models having first year issues... urban legend?

    Nowadays much less so, but still relevant. If there's a new technology, be it in an engine or system, there can be issues. I worked for Nissan and usually it was something dumb but easily fixable... The black plastic roof channel pieces would randomly fall out of the new Pathfinders... But a...

    I may go to that site and bug them for Wrangler knowledge too. Thank you. I still don't understand why Wrangler resale values are so high. It makes even less sense to me that they seem to be heavily discounted from the dealership new. That's not a bad idea, though that isn't a great idea...

    Thank you again for your advice. I'll read up a bit more about the 2021 steering differences but I'm glad to hear this as I was also considering used.

    Jeep dealer / salesperson recommendation TX

    That's a coincidence alright. What do you suggest as far as body panel and badge misalignments? Is this normal for Jeep or do you just wish you spotted it beforehand. I'm not sure what a dealership would or could do though to be fair. If it's crappy from the factory, it isn't the...

    Cancellations are making headlines ...

    Maybe I'm in the minority but I have all the time in the world. I'm considering the Wrangler because of the price hike for the base four door. I then realized just how much dealers are willing to discount them. Plus if I can get wheels and tires I like and a rear LSD and 4A transfer case, I'd...

    Jeep dealer / salesperson recommendation TX

    Thank you @9wranglers-later . Yes, the steering felt fine at highway speeds in the 2021 I drove. The hard top was also surprisingly quiet though I plan to go soft top. There was slight floating at 60+ but it had skinny 32" M/Ts and I felt that was understandable.the 2.0T felt great! I have a...

    And like I asked, do you recommend a forum? I'm sure there are several and of differing quality.

    Bronco, are you ready for this?

    In no way would I ever want to live in Guam. Plus I remember it to be fairly humid. Great scuba diving though. Unless you're stationed there I would find that to be very undesirable unless it's changed in the last decade.

    So i'm really on the fence on buying one now with my reservation or waiting until i can actually sit in one first.

    A little birdie told me that's possible if you order during the alloted time but communicate with your dealer that you want to keep pushing back when the order is actually sent in to Ford. I have no first had knowledge but I was led to believe it can easily be done.

    Hi, I test drove a new JLU Willys yesterday and had perhaps the worst experience there I've had. Bang for the buck, it appears that the Willys may be a better fit for me, sad as it is. (I never thought the idea of getting a nice new Jeep as a second choice would be unfortunate. Hey, nice to...

    Bronco Big Bend vs Jeep Wrangler Willy's

    Well this sucks. The more I read about the Willys Wheeler Edition the more I like it. A fairly basic build has an MSRP of $37,650. Pros: wheels and tires, real towing package, rear LSD. That right there could be worth it to me. Hmm. I look forward to Bronco on-road driving reviews...

    Bronco Big Bend vs Jeep Wrangler Willy's

    Great timing that this thread started as I'm a four door base Bronco guy but with the automatic price increase, I too this morning started looking back at the Wrangler, Willys specifically. Can someone please elaborate what their "anti-slip (rear) differential" is? I'd guess a clutch type...
